splendour series: outfit #2

Wearing: Dress c/o Lulu*s (similar), sandals c/o Lulu*s, bag c/o Lulu*s, vintage concho belt (similar).
Hey! How you doin’? (Joey Tribiani reference intended) Here, friends, I present you with part two of my Splendour lookbook. I have always avoided maxi dresses because I am a tiny human and maxi-anything looks like an oversized potato sack on me- but now, not so much. Tying it in a knot made a world of difference, plus DANG THIS THING IS COMFORTABLE. It’s like one continuous flow of fabric and I didn’t even wear a bra. P.S. TMI isn’t a thing if you’re reading this blog- hope you’ve figured that one out by now.

If that entire paragraph didn’t make sense, it’s because I woke up at 3:46 this morning to catch a flight to Cairns. Let me tell you, I definitely had the intention of going to bed early in preparation. I got two hours sleep and regret everything. Basically, we’re here for one of our infamous dad-booked family holidays. Things never seem to go smoothly for the Wight family. But so far so good, we’re staying in Port Douglas and the weather is stunning. Keep up with my Insta/Snapchat/Twitter for beach snaps and me being an idiot and stuff. I need sleep SO BADLY. Let me know what you’re doing/where you’re going/what you’re wearing because I’m nosy like that. Talk soon. Much love xx


splendour series: outfit #1

Wearing: Lulu*s crop top (similar), Missguided jacket, Ziggy Denim jeans, Lulus sandals.

Hello loves! And welcome to the 2015 edition of my Splendour posts. If you’re new here- Splendour in the Grass is the Australian music festival of all Australian music festivals. Needless to say, I’m a faithful attendee. This’ll be my third year and it’s our little tradition here on VON to do a couple of posts in the festival spirit. Because I love them so freaking much I decided to turn this whole thing into a series. Multiple outfits, makeup looks, festival essentials, playlists… you name it. If you ask me, this is a pretty great way to kick it off. If I could bring one thing from my closet this year? This jacket. Dude, this jacket. Fringe with functionality… doesn’t get much more festival-appropriate than that.

Still trotting along, trying to keep myself motivated when it’s now cold and Netflix is always down to snuggle. It’s an unusual feeling coming out of high school and into the world of everything-is-your-responsibility. As much as I complained about it (all the time) it was nice to have a teacher email you purely to nag about that assignment you hadn’t even started. You feel? I need to stop going off on all these weird-ass tangents. Kurt’s on a cruise along with everyone else I hang out with. Human interaction is sparse. Keep me sane by tweeting me and have a wonderful night! Much love x

Any garment that you can describe as both “swishy” and “majestical”, in my opinion, is a good one. One thing I’ve learnt from wearing this jacket: kids like the tassels, boys- not so much. While a little girl was absolutely infatuated with it, my friend’s boyfriend politely asked what was going on with my “strings.” It’s fashun, guys. And I plan on wearing it allll the way to Splendour. And I haven’t even talked about these shoes. MY GOODNESS, THESE SHOES. Kylie wore something similar to the Topshop opening and that may or may not be the reason I got them. I’m a fangirl. Sue me.

Currently uploading a new video, eating dark chocolate and watching Entourage reruns because you know, Saturday night. Also OITNB is done and dusted. I’m a loose cannon. I talked a little last week about passion and doing what you love. After dedicating even a little more time to writing and blogging I feel so much more inspiration to continue. I hope you guys do too. And I’ll talk to you soon! Much love x

I won’t lie and tell you I haven’t worn this skirt 5 out of 7 days this past week. So now it’s all out on the table. Suppose I’ve been in a tiny style/life/inspiration rut this past week or so and am making tiny monochrome moves to get out of it. At least my nails are purple? But grey-on-grey-on-black is cool- I’m not hating. Especially when this skirt gives me a booty- a tiny booty, yes- but a booty nonetheless. Have I said booty enough now?

So my update: I’m sick of feeling sub-par. Just okay, not the best, have been better- I want to feel on top of my game and ready to take on the world, Beyoncé-style. Basically I’ve been floating along, not really throwing myself into anything that I’m passionate about. So this afternoon I started working on some projects. Some exciting projects that make me happy and will hopefully make you happy too. But now it’s time for a break and another episode of OITNB. Because I’m passionate about that too, alright!? Anyway- send love and good vibes my way. I’m sending them out to you. I’ll see you very soon… I hope you’re feeling happy and excited about life and all the things. Much love x0
